Outdoor Entertainment Area Specialists

Being out in the fresh air and sunshine are known stress reducers. Of course you can always go for a walk or visit a park whenever circumstances permit, but imagine having a private outdoor living space for unwinding in your own backyard. Building an outdoor entertainment area can dramatically increase your living area too!

A combination of blinds, screens, and even a pergola can create the perfect covered outdoor living space that transitions seamlessly from a kitchen or lounge. Or if it’s a modern outdoor entertaining area you’re after, bespoke lighting and a chic verandah may be more to your taste. 

One thing’s for sure, with cosy elements such as firepits and built-in seating through to practical features like an automatic louvre roof, outdoor living ideas run the gamut when it comes to style and budget, so there’s something for everyone. But working with a team of professional outdoor entertaining area builders and designers is the best way to create an atmosphere that complements your property and lifestyle.

An outdoor entertainment area to suit your budget

If you want to build an outdoor entertainment area on a budget, we can create concept designs to fit within your financial comfort zone and we can rework according to your feedback. This approach helps to define areas you may want to splurge, and where you’re happy to compromise.

No matter which route you choose, rest assured you’ll receive the same robust customer support and superior craftsmanship that Zones is known for.

Outdoor Entertainment Area FAQs

How long does it take to build an outdoor entertainment area?

Timelines vary and there are a myriad of factors that can impact an estimated schedule. We’ve completed projects in anywhere from four weeks to four months and beyond. Part of our 5-step process includes creating a detailed timeline so our Landscaping Consultants can reach milestones in a timely manner which helps them stay on schedule. So, while each project is unique, each one is planned in advance so you’ll know what’s going on and have a projected date of completion for your outdoor entertainment area.

What are some popular landscaping ideas for outdoor entertainment areas?

Incorporating spa pools into an outdoor area is a common request by homeowners as it’s a luxurious item but can often be an eyesore without the proper execution. Whether the spa pool is the focal point of the landscape or simply a design element is up to you.  

Functional yet stylish outdoor BBQ area ideas are another entertaining space staple. They’re not as comprehensive as an outdoor kitchen but still serve as an incredible social hub for parties and gatherings. Simple ideas include a pergola for shelter, weatherproof storage, and seating. But some designs even see the BBQ built into a brick housing or complemented by a wood-burning pizza oven!

What are the steps involved in building an outdoor entertainment area?

Outdoor spaces come in all shapes and sizes, but we apply the same proven process to each landscape renovation. 

  1. First you’ll arrange an initial consultation with a local Landscaping Consultant during which you’ll discuss your goals, budget, and preferred timeline. 
  2. Then, they’ll take this information and provide you with a concept design which illustrates your outdoor area ideas.
  3.  Once the plans have been refined, an estimate can be drawn up for you to review. 
  4. Construction begins after you’ve approved the proposed plans and quote. 
  5. Finally, your Landscaping Consultant will hand over any essential documentation for your project. Then, all that’s left to do is enjoy your new outdoor living area!

What factors do I need to consider when planning an outdoor entertainment area in Australia?

Aside from council consent, which your Landscaping Consultant can help you with, weather and the existing landscape are the two biggest factors. Consider your local climate. If there’s excessive rain or even sunshine, you may want to think about creating a partially covered outdoor space that gives you the option to escape the elements. 

Also, take the time to survey your property. Are there any obvious challenges such as steep inclines or an abundance of overgrown bush? If so, your Landscaping Consultant may need to coordinate excavation specialists, or you may opt to go back to the drawing board and instead work with your landscape instead of against it. But these are all things that will be addressed early on in the planning process, so don’t worry.
